As we age, our skin changes and many people begin to notice a loss of elasticity, the emergence of fine lines, and a decrease in that youthful smoothness and glow. With traditional cosmetic treatments, dermal fillers are used to fill wrinkles or restore volume to the face. SKINVIVE™ offers an innovative alternative to skin rejuvenation; a microdroplet facial injectable designed to give you a fresh new glow.
SKINVIVE™ by JUVÉDERM® is the first and only FDA-approved hyaluronic acid (HA) microdroplet injectable in the US to improve skin smoothness of the cheeks. It isn’t designed to rebuild volume like traditional dermal fillers on the market. This injectable contains microdroplets of a hyaluronic acid gel formula that attracts water in your skin, which naturally decreases with age and sun exposure.
As a microdroplet facial injectable, it is injected subcutaneously through a series of small injection sites spaced about 0.5-1 cm apart throughout the treatment area. As SKINVIVE™ diffuses into the skin, it improves skin smoothness and hydration, leaving you with an improved, overall glow from within.
SKINVIVE™ can be used for overall skin rejuvenation but is especially effective in the cheek area. It boosts hydration in the area while improving the texture of the skin. Due to its formulation, this injectable works to boost collagen production, improve elasticity, and smooth skin in the treated area.
While the ideal treatment depends on your specific needs and goals, SKINVIVE™ is a great option for individuals looking to rejuvenate their skin and achieve a healthy glow, while traditional fillers are best for patients seeking to restore the loss of volume and contour. At SKIN FIVE, our esteemed dermatologists and providers deliver expert care to ensure you achieve your aesthetic goals.
SKINVIVE™ is the first FDA-approved injectable of its kind that serves as the sole hyaluronic acid booster. By contrast, traditional fillers are used to enhance volume and sculpt facial features. There are a variety of hyaluronic acid fillers approved by the FDA including the most popular brands, Juvederm and Restylane.
While traditional fillers like JUVÉDERM® and Restylane are renowned for their ability to add volume and contour various areas of the face, SKINVIVE™ takes a different approach. Rather than altering your natural features, it works by enhancing your existing beauty, promoting your body’s own natural hyaluronic acid production. This means that rather than giving you an overdone or artificial look, SKINVIVE™ subtly rejuvenates your skin, allowing you to look and feel like the best version of yourself.
SKINVIVE™ can be helpful to many patients, effectively addressing various cosmetic concerns regardless of age. Ideal candidates typically include those who want to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and to restore lost volume and contour in specific facial regions.
Results typically last 6-7 months. Some patients may schedule appointments for touch-ups like other traditional skincare treatments. Perhaps best of all, there is little downtime associated with this treatment. After a day of protecting the injection area from sun exposure and avoiding heavy exercise, you can get back to your routine.]
